I know I should be glad to get a wrap-up at all, but right now I can't help my big disappointment ...
I just can't see how they could provide a satisfying conclusion to such a complex show in only six eps, when Simon Barry earlier had said he'd have a story in mind for 5 to 7 seasons ... damn ... that sucks a lot ...
Sad Mad Sad Mad 

BTW, what a crap is that ...???
According to ShawMedia's press release the are talking of "... SHOWCASE’S SMASH-HIT ORIGINAL SERIES ..." and 
"... a suspenseful third season that reached more than 2.35 million viewers (v2+) and ended with a cliffhanger finale that won the night as the #1 program in key demos for all of Canadian specialty ..."

Yet they actually allow only final six episodes??? What the hell am I missing here????  scratch Suspect Evil or Very Mad Crying or Very sad

Well Tscc, sadly it isnt about producing good shows, it is about money, and for money they need ratings.
Apparently it does good in canada, but that is a small market and not enough to support the show.
Ratings went down in america, and that is why syfy dropped it.
Ratings might not be good in other countries too.

I think the plan all along is that they were counting on selling the show to other markets, and that has
fizzled out.

The ratings control what we watch, not real popularity, it is all estimated and advertisers believe in it so
we get what the ratings allow, which means some crappy shows air for 10 years or more and some that are very good get only 1 or 2.

that is why I like to follow the ratings, so I know that a show is in trouble or not , it makes it easier
 when you know the axe is coming.
Also like with flash you know you can relax and show will be on for good while.

The other thing which I dont like is they never come out and say why or give any details, so the not knowing makes it worse.
they should just say the truth and all the whys but they dont.

I thought 6 shows was a little odd, but that suggests they dont want to spend much more $ ending it.
But like nikita, just be thankful it is getting those to end it.
Hopefully they give it a happy ending.

As far as I read, syfy actually didn't drop it at all. They said months ago they would like to continue airing, but have to wait for the green light from Canada if the show would be continued at all. And they were never co-producers or something like that, they just bought the rights to air it in the USA.

1) This!!!!!!!

I read somewhere about a speculation, that Continuum was not liked by "big money", because of it's critical and too blunt references to present behaviour and developments of big corporations. Maybe that's not that far-fetched?

2) Well, I have to say they did a fantastic job with the final six Nikitas. I didn't dare to expect that, but it was close to perfect.
The thing is though, I still imagine how awesome it could have been to have Nikita and its cool cast around for another two or three seasons.
With Continuum it's the same basically, but it will probably be much worse, because I simply cannot imagine, how they could finish theese complex storylines with all the philosophic background of their future world and the dead-on critical references to our present real-life developments in a satisfying way without feeling totally rushed or even haphazard ...
Well, well, I probably have to chew on this for a while ... that won't go away soon ... Crying or Very sad

Ok, this interview makes me a tiny little bit less sad. Maybe they manage to pull a "Nikita" ... let's hope so ...

That is a possibility, and also it is corporations that pay to advertise on shows, lol so they might not want to advertise on a show like that.
But without anyone with show saying why, we will never know.
I had read that syfy dropped it or was not going to renew for S-3 even, but I dont know if that was legit or not.
Just the fact that it aired in 135 countries seems to day it is making $, so maybe it was the message of the show, being anti corporate.

Well at least it is getting a ending, I just wonder if it will be happy ending or not.
Will she go back to her future and kid? or find happiness in past.
What will the final social statement be?

Cool, that they figured out a way to have Roger in the final season of Continuum. He's a big part of it and it wouldn't be the same without him.
Maybe through some time travel Travis finally might get kind of an happy end?

It's nice to see him already again on Dark Matter (no match for Continuum, but pretty watchable) and The Strain (currently in S2 and getting even better than just ok imho).

I'm so torn ... on the one hand it's really sad that it has to end, when I so hoped for more seasons, but on the other hand I absolutely can't wait for the finale ... maybe they manage to pull a Nikita!!
Go Continuum!!!! cheers bounce

Liber8 - a Continuum podcast with Mike & Dave

Show 086 – Continuum Season 4 Renewal:

"The fourth and final season of Continuum has been announced, and obviously the feelings are bittersweet. What happened to delay this announcement? Why are there only six episodes? When will the final episodes air? Will they have enough time to wrap things up? Will it fit with Simon Barry’s original vision? And what’s going on with the podcast? Mike and Dave attempt to answer these questions and more in our Season 4 renewal discussion."



Show 087 – Continuum Countdown:

"It’s been ages since we talked about our favorite show, Continuum, but it’s time to return to the podcast to tell you about the Continuum Countdown! Together with the ContinuumSeries folks on social media, Mike and Dave will be counting down the 36 days until the season four premiere with reminiscences of each episode of the previous three seasons, one per day. The countdown begins with the season 1, episode 1 remembrances on July 30.
Mike and Dave are also taking this opportunity to talk about what they’ve been up to, what summer shows they’ve been watching, including Dark Matter, Defiance, Killjoys, Falling Skies, Extant, Humans, (caution: spoilers) and other more obscure fare. Plus show news and upcoming convention guests!
The Liber8 Continuum podcast will return for the season three rewatch entitled “Season Three: What Struck Me,” a daily 8-minute revisiting that will take place in the final 13 days of the countdown."

yeah if the show was such a hit in canada , it is weird.
The only thing I can think of is if it did not do well elsewhere, maybe it needed to make
money in other markets to keep it going.
but then they say it airs in 132 countries lol

Just a mystery.

I admit 6 eps is short to end it.

Oh, it just says "Our Favorite current shows", not "our favorite broadcast shows", so I thought Continuum deserves the place there, because besides POI for me Continuum is definitely one of the best shows of the last years. I would easily sacrifice almost any of the other shows, if it helped Continuum to run for more seasons ... sadly it doesn't work like that ...
Maybe we can leave the Continuum forum up there for the last season ...
I even already tried to lure Ez into it, just don't know if he'll go for it (actually it should be the perfect deal to binge watch the first 3 seasons and then continue seamlessly with the final 6-ep-season 4).
